    I just found out my Stepdads, Nephew holds the Illinois state record on Flathead catfish. Though he's not a catfisherman, and caught it by accident. I thought it was cool. I also thought it would be bigger than it is.​

    No, it took me 13 years to figure it out. :smile2::smile2::smile2: And yes, they were fishing for white bass when they caught the beast. And maybe I've only met the guy once or twice.... But if you think about it my way.....

    If record catching runs in the blood, and jumps from one family to another.... it's going to land on mine fairly soon. So yes, record catfish run in my blood. ( kinda :eek:oooh:) Follow me?

    No, sorry I missed ya :smile2::smile2:. Oh by the way, the whites are starting to turn on nicely, cleaned 75 for the freezer all were 13-15"s, I think we caught over 125 in 3-4 hours jiggin spoons over on the east side by the old bridges :wink: the cooler weather will be turning the eyes on better also, and well the crappie have been doing ok for a month in deeper water...... Justt so ya know.
